Young Members

So you like real ale & you’re under 30? Well you’re in the right place…well maybe not if it isn’t the pub! Welcome to Stourbridge & Halesowen CAMRA Young Members. I’m Matt Merrick you’re YM branch contact. My role is to represent and ensure the branch considers the needs of its young members when planning and campaigning social events. I’m also responsible for organising activities on your behalf that I feel will specifically appeal to you, the young member. Whether that is a ‘rail ale’ pub crawl to a neighbouring branch or a jolly up to a local brewery, to name just a handful of shenanigans we have got up too lately. I encourage all our young members to actively get involved with branch social events throughout the year, even if it’s just to pop along to a monthly branch meeting , come say “hi”, meet like-minded new drinking buddies and share your thoughts with us (see the branch diary for details of up-coming events). There’s more ways to keep in touch! I run a twitter account @StourHalesYM where you can follow what we’ve been up too (or sipping!). We also like to bring you the latest news from our local pubs, clubs & breweries 7 days a week so you don’t miss a thing! Feel free to tweet us! Alternatively you can contact me on - ku.gro.armac.selahruots@srebmem.gnuoy

Stourbridge and Halesowen Young Members will be hosting a mini-pub crawl around Sedgley on Saturday 25th February. Ports of call will be The Beacon, Jolly Crispin, and The Britannia. Travel will be via bus from Stourbridge on 246 and 1 routes.

We shall be meeting at Stourbridge bus station at 11:15am prompt to catch the 246 once everyone has arived to Dudley Bus station and from there the #1 bus to Sedgley. Both buses run at frequent intervals (a day saver ticket is advised). Depending on traffic the two bus journeys should take approx 1 hour an 15 combined. I envision to arrive at the Beacon around 1pm-ish.

Note - The Beacon closes at 3pm hence our first port of call. From there it's a short hop back on the #1 to the Jolly Crispin heading back towards Dudley. The Brittania is a 5 min walk from the JC heading in the same direction.

We look forward to seeing as many of you for a day of good beer & banter!
